After just one shot at trying to get Apollo's meds into him, I'm already at my wit's end :cry: He won't sit still if I try and give it via needle into the skin, and he won't take it orally either. I only got a litte into him tonight, and it was just because he was mad at the syringe and he bit onto the end of it. :(

How the heck am I supposed to give him his medication? He absolutely hates me now. :cry:

Thanks for the help :) I will try those.

And about injecting - I know how, as I'm taking a vet assistant course, but the little bugger just won't sit still enough for me to do it properly.

Thank you all for your help! He is now taking it readily, when I mix it with Strawberry Ensure (meal replacement drink).

About the injections, he was injected with it at the vet and he was okay, but now that I know, I won't let them do that again. My usual vet probably would have known not to.

He's still turning, but he can walk in a straight line for a few steps now, so he looks like he'll be slowly improving. How long do you think he'll have to be on it? The vet said 10 days.
